How Hard Water Can Affect Your Skin

Did you know World Water Day is on March 22nd? This world holiday was created in order to recognize the importance of freshwater and taking care of our environment in order to prevent pollution. There are many people around the world who have to live without access to freshwater. This can be a huge safety hazard and cause major health concerns for those who may live in areas of poverty. 

The type of water we use to wash our face has an effect on our skin. "Hard water" is a type of water that is being used in certain areas and it can negatively impact your skin. In some cities such as Indianapolis, Las Vegas, and Minneapolis, hard water is very prevalent. Hard water contains minerals that can clog your pores and even dry out your skin. If you use hard water often, it can aggravate your skin and cause you to age quicker. 

How can you protect your skin from hard water? Use water softeners, which can filter out the minerals that will damage your skin. Also, you can use face cleansers to make sure your skin is staying fresh. Use our Double-Duty Amino Gel Face Cleanser + Makeup Remover to clean out your pores. 

On World Water Day, make sure to recognize the importance of keeping our water fresh. Some people around the world are struggling to obtain freshwater.
